IF - Detective

 I haven't participated in Illustration Friday for awhile, but thought this week's theme sounded fun. Using my old watercolour pad, which I discovered on Thursday has deteriorated, I thought it could produce any interesting fog-like atmospheric background. I've ended up with quite a naive painting I think, but as I had fun doing it I thought I would post it regardless.

Although I am sure the Guy Richie / Robert Downey, Jr. version is great (I haven't had the opportunity to see it yet), I wanted a more traditional image of Britain's most famous detective. I found my reference photo on the Private Investigators forum. Can you believe there is such a thing?
